According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), 10 people in Florida, Massachusetts and New York have been infected with a strain of Listeria. All 10 have been hospitalized, and one death has been reported in Florida. Epidemiologic evidence indicates deli meat is the most likely source of the outbreak. The nine survivors all reported eating Italian style meats, such as salami, mortadella and prosciutto. Each reported purchasing prepackaged deli meats and/or meats sliced at deli counters in various locations. As of now, a specific type of deli meat and common supplier have not been identified. If you are at a higher risk for getting sick with Listeria — you are pregnant, 65 or older or have a weakened immune system — you should avoid eating deli meats unless they are heated to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
